of this four story -- a strong man, like a martin luther king. you quoted it very courageous speech. he sacrificed his life because of that speech, but a man to stand up and has moral rectitude to say to the public that we must walkout of this valley of fear that we're living in and you cannot leave all this nonsense and we need somebody. when they see a book or a vcr movie or something in this would inspire someone in the next generation. >> it raised the question for me whether the public has become so cynical about our politics, so afraid about the world that we live in that it would be impossible to question. kingd it be possible for 18a to ascend? is the ground still fertile enough? >> by 1968, he was a great hero to many people because he was speaking insanity that they needed to hear and people know the truth. the truth has in mind of the town and people hear it. it takes guts to say it because you are risking it. there will be somebody. >> the first blurb we got on the book was from a kilgore but jeff. we hold a month as a kind of model -- was from mckale or which of -- mikhail

progress, and then on the very first day of the year martin luther king opens up his drive in selma and that takes up a good chapter early in the book and most people know the story when they beat up people and putting john lewis and send people to the hospital and so one and he goes on tv and says we shall overcome and comes up with a voting rights act that passes and that's even more important than that act. however during the course of the selwa thing the sports that already existed in the civil rights movement which should be regarded as movements were already there and the nonviolent coordinating committee which had already been working for voting rights resembled martin luther king coming in there and wouldn't work for him for the most part but there's virtually no meeting of the - and the southern christian leadership conference on the others and you begin to see the split within the civil rights movement that is pretty irreparable. >> let me play the devil's of a ticket on this. there are a lot of people who talk about the black freedom movement and they see the movement whe

martin luther king coming in and taking credit and would work with him for the most part. there is virtually no meeting of the minds between snake and coral on the one hand and the southern christian leadership in the cooking of the other. they begin to see a split within the civil rights movement is pretty reparable. post goes to let me devils advocate. there was a lot of people who talk about the black freedom for a movement and a seat at the event, whether in terms of civil rights for civil rights and black power, social and political influence in society. they see it as something that has the goal. others might say okay, you're right. 1965 by that by that time you have for civil rights and voting rights combined. let's move on. not everyone will be happy. in other words, i don't necessarily think a split in the civil rights movement is inherently important. selma still leads to the the voting rights act is not inherently important in terms of decisions in sclc. the black road changes in a way that there's a riot in harlem and they seem to mean some pain. and so, it's

'68 probably was in terms of world-shattering memorable events. but it was a tame when the 50s and the early '60s rapidly vanished from -- began to vanish from view in a hurry, and the real reason is -- you'll probably ask me that but that's why. >> host: i think i pretty much agree with you that the central year, for the '60s, is 196 5. but there's something more at stake in your book. at least i think so. i want to probe on that. in a way you can either be talking about the '60s and just talking abo
